A quick one to share for Tuesday am:

Delia's Way

To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

The Real Woman's Way

Buy Smash and keep it in the cupboard for up to a year.

Delia's Way

When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking tin, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

The Real Woman's Way

Tesco sells cakes. They even do decorated versions.

---------------------------------------------------------------


Delia's Way

If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a potato slice.

The Real Woman's Way

If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's tough sh*t.

Your family will eat it and be grateful for it, no matter how bad it tastes.

Delia's Way

Wrap celery in aluminium foil when putting it in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

The Real Woman's Way

It could keep forever for all I care. Who eats it anyway?

---------------------------------------------------

Delia's Way

Brush some beaten egg white over piecrusts before baking to give a beautiful glossy finish.

The Real Woman's Way

Sainsbury's frozen pie directions do not include time-wasting instructions to brush anything over anything.

Delia's Way

Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead.

The throbbing will go away.

The Real Woman's Way

Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and drop it in 8 ounces of vodka. Drink the vodka. The throbbing won't matter any more.

Delia's Way

If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves.

They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.

The Real Woman's Way

What do you think men are for?

Delia's Way

Freeze leftover wine into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

The Real Woman's Way

Leftover wine????

seen this before. very funny

Baffled by the wine. Who actually has any left over?

Left over wine: not a common phenomenon in our house, I can tell you .

I can't be the only person who has set out to try and do things the Delia way and rapidly reverted to RW status, can I?
